Apple and Raisin Compote for Pork

hof6820 says:


Served this with pork loin and it was incredible. Don't just save this for pork. It is so versitile my husband ate the leftovers on toasted english muffins. It did not say how thick to slice the apples, so I did a thick lazy slice, it just took a bit more liquid and more time to make sure the apples were soft. So allow 20 - 30 minutes for full cook time.
